Re: Multiple Sclerosis

I have resurrected this post from a few years ago.

Starting August 1st I am going to start teaching Aikido to MS patients. I already have several people interested in various stages. I myself have learned a lot about MS in the past month or so. I would welcome any suggestions you all might have.

Thank you Urban Sensei for sending me your tips and advice!

This is an exciting opportunity for myself and the new students to figure out what can be done, rather than what can not be done. Too often we've been told what we can't do because of our age and our limitations. Now we figure out what we can do. Work around those obstacles and see for ourselves. There are some University Medical Students coming to class to see what we do and how we do it. No pressure! ;-)

I'll come back and post on my findings. Thank you all!

Victims, aren't we all.
